his ideas for reform of the immigration system. >> president obama took air force one out to nevada yesterday for the first trip of his second term to talk immigration reform. in a big high school auditorium filled with people chanting to "yes, it's possible." president obama essentially said he's glad a bipartisan group of eight u.s. senators has come together to put the ideas they share into an immigration reform bill that president obama didn't exactly endorse the bill because it hasn't actually been written yet. something the president did say, though, is that a top priority needs to be giving illegal aliens a pathway to citizenship. >> we have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway to citizenship. >> the president also said that citizens shouldn't have to wait years for their families to join them here in the states, and that is where the differences between the pre
